How to Understand My Daughter Better?

by A Wondering Mother

My daughter is 15 and she never wants to be in the house.
She lives with her foster parents.
She has permission to stay with me once a week, but when she comes down.

She is always really cheeky and slobbers at me.
She says that I do not understand why she is being like this.

How can I understand her?
She was never like this a year ago!
I think she may have some sort of behaviour issues but how do I find out?

Ive tried everything with her.
Everyone has had the same problems with her, she has been in 7 different children homes.
They said the behaviour had to stop but she doesnt listen to anyone!

She has no respect for any one.
I have actually given up on my own daughter.
Its not something i wanted to do, but she held a knife to my throat when I was 5 months pregnant.

I dont know what is going on!!!

It must be very difficult for you, considering your daughter is fostered and you only have short precious time with her.

Remember that 15 is a very difficult age.
My daughter was awful to live with between the ages of 14 - 16.

Also, she might find her time with you difficult, you may need to work more on the bonding aspect. How is she with her foster parents. Do they have the same problems as you?

It might have nothing to do with you personally, just a case of horrible hormones - girls of this age are notoriously difficult to live with but it does get better with age.

My daughter is now 37 with a family of her own and is unrecognizable from the teenager she was.

Try to have some quality talk time, organize something you both like doing, something girly maybe like watching a movie together. She maybe just waiting for you to make the first move in wanting to talk.

I wish you all the best and hope that something can be resolved so that the time you do have together is full of happiness and laughter.
